Octopus on the money with Spain pick over Germany

11:56 am on 8 July 2010

Paul, the so-called psychic octopus in Germany, has continued his gambling streak by correctly predicting every game involving the national team at the football World Cup.

Paul, from the Sea Life Aquarium in city of Oberhausen, picked Spain over Germany in the semi-final by choosing a mussel from a jar with the Spanish flag instead of one with a German flag.

Paul also correctly predicted all five of the team's previous World Cup games - including a surprise loss to Serbia in the group stages.
